Week At A Glance

January 18-23, 2016

First Girls' Basketball Game

Remember that our first Girls' basketball game is this Thursday against Riverside Thursday, 1/21 @ 3:15pm. Please encourage your students to come cheer on the team in their opening game of the season! Pre-sale tickets will be available January19-20th for $1. Please send permission slips/$ to the office first thing in the morning.

Feel free to wear FALCON wear to cheer them on Thursday! Those of you who are working the game tomorrow afternoon in any capacity (e.g., scoreboard, books, tickets, or supervision) may also wear jeans!

For those of you who would still like to sign up for supervision, access the following link: https://goo.gl/8Ym1K8 .


In preparation for the online portion of ISTEP later this spring, the state of Indiana will be participating in a statewide readiness assessment. This will take place on Wednesday, January 20th at 10am. In order for everyone to prepare for this assessment, we need the “Pearson TestNav” app downloaded on each of our 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders’ iPads no later than Tuesday, January 19th. This app can be found in Apple’s App Store and is free. This is a picture of the app.

Please verify Tuesday, 1/19 that all students have downloaded the app. If they have not, please contact parents. Refer to emails from John and Jessica for more information.

Individuals assisting on Wednesday during the ISTEP stress test (10AM-11AM) in the labs will complete the following:

  • get a test ticket from Jessica or Kim
  • log into the Pearson’s TestNav website (icon is on the desktop)
  • log into the stress test using your test ticket
  • click through the questions until the end.
